Just awaiting timbers for the roof now.
Looks massive cannot wait to see it kitted out
Nice, what you putting in that circle space?
Just a circular window pal, front may well have been fairly featureless without it.
Nice, I thought it was perfectly shaped for a large BMW roundel!!!

How you getting on with this?
My wood has arrived for the roof but ive just had such a busy time of it all over the last 4/5 months of none stop work Ive decided to let off the gas pedal for a week.
Im an all or nothing kind of guy and ive got a lot going on at the moment, ive got a son, a full time job, a house renovation, a garage build and ive just hosted my dads 60th at my house.
The weather is starting to turn now which is something I really didn't want, and we are due 40mph winds here tomorrow which is making me worry about my single skin gables, especially the one in the middle. But I cant do anything till I have some scaffolding or at least a couple of towers and some help. These 6m 8x3" timbers I have for my purlins aren't light....
So Ive got to hope and pray that it doesn't fall down over the next day or so in the bad weather and then get myself some scaffolding and some help from a mate and crack on at another job im not qualified in.... Roofing.
The weather has certainly deteriorated.
Good luck with getting it finished
Ah mate, this is garage goals right here!!
Wow what a project! And what a place!
Not sure how I missed this thread but subcribed now!
I will be continuing with this (with some more pics) at weekend I have managed to amass some purlin joint brackets, scaffold, and the help of 3 possibly 4 willing voulenteers to assist... all for the costly sum of £60 Sunday is the day!
Looking great mate, it’s huge I’m jealous, I’ll be watching to see what ideas I can steal for my garage renovation (build - haha).
Nice, been one of my favourite threads to date on here - keep the updates coming!
Had my wood delivered and after a load of faff changing my order (reducing the sizes opf the timbers from spec as they were just too big and expensive) and getting refunded too much money?? I got the original order of 12x4" purlins and 6x2" rafters delivered for less than half the price they should have been!! Big mistake by the unmentionable timber company but I wasnt complaining.
Anyway more work completed this weekend, after my nice break from DIY, back in with a bang, I feel like ive done 10 rounds with tyson this weekend... Im shattered.
Had to do the woodwork below and move a load of stone quoins which varied in weight between about 60 and 120kg!
12x4"Purlins fitted... These weigh some I can assure you.
Big pile of rafters...
Starting to put rafters up
The rafters are currently on half of the building ready for birdsmouth cuts. But its bloody hard work on your own, with them being 6m long!!
Coming on though!
Should be finished by the end of the week, then its getting insulated box section sheeting fitted.
How did you lift the rafters?
By yanking on them
Brute force mate.
And I suspect you mean the purlins, the rafters are 6x2" bits on the top, the purlins are the 12x4" big beasties that you can see are bolted together.
Rafters are relatively easy in comparison.
I still wish Id have got 4x2" though!
Would have been a lot lighter and therefore easier.
Just having the debate whether to birdsmough at the mo to prevent spread but I think im just going to use a rafter plate bolted to the wall instead.
